Wow gotta go I did not consciously even realise that. I suppose I meant it in terms of a large meteor, exploding, 600 people with .aches and puking their guts out. Perhaps it was prophetic. But I think the jury is still way out on this one. Lack of data, many anomalies. Hey, I'm sounding more and more like a debunker every day! Maybe I can be converted! LOL

Honestly, deep down inside I've always wanted a zombie outbreak to occur. I'm a big fan of zombie movies, Dawn of The Dead 1974 and Dawn of The Dead 2004 being the best of the lot.

What happened in Peru is closer to the scenario of the movie Slither. There was a meteor crash landing AND zombies in that movie. But that was one disgusting film. I wouldn't want Slither to happen at all.

BBC reported 600 people falling ill.

So did USA Today

AP reported 200 sick...


Reuters said they examined 100 people who all had .aches and vomiting.

If you compare these stories, they dont even get the width of the crater right...some of them call it a object, some call it a meteorite.

- Reuters say its 65 feet wide, 22 feet deep and that they have examined 100 people who had .aches and vomiting.

- BBC says its 98 feet wide, 20 feet deep and that a bull died and several others are sick. The crater is spewing with noxious gases. Hundreds of people have visited the site, and most of them have .aches, vomiting and nausea.

- USA Today says its 55 feet wide and 16 feet deep. Somewhere between 100 and 600 people being sick with .aches, nausea and vomiting.

- AP says its 66 feet wide and 16 feet deep. About 200 people suffering from .aches, nausea and respiratory problems. The meteor expert in this article actually says that a meteorite "wouldn't get much gas out of the earth". He says its coming from the dust it raises...

- ABC News says its about 60 feet wide (20m) and several animals have died.

- MSNBC says its 100 feet wide and 20 feet deep. More than 600 people are feeling ill was reported Tuesday. Symptoms are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, .aches and stomach pain.

Similar cases were created in 2002 and 2004 but were never confirmed to be meteorites.

Im not sure how it works, but shouldnt NASA track meteorites?

One news report out of Peru said specialist teams are being put together to go to the site and test the water, atmosphere and debris, as well as diagnose injurys reported. They indicated it would take as long as seven days (two days ago) before results could be released. Whether that means the CDC may be involved I don't know.

From what i've read so far sounds like a film i saw a trailer for at the weekend called "Invasion" ... A Metorite crashes to Earth, some unknown thing is found on it and then people start falling ill, eventually people start going crazy etc etc.

Well if the movies have taught us anything(The Blob, etc), its this: STAY AWAY FROM FLAMING METEORITES THAT LAND NEAR YOU! The worst thing you can do is be curious about something you know nothing about.

It's been reported that it was confirmed to be a carbonaceous chondrite; if that's correct, then it wasn't a chunk of ice:

Regarding the depth of anaerobic decomposition, there was such activity under a few inches of mud in the pond near where I grew up. It doesn't have to be hundreds of feet down or blocked by an appreciable impermeable layer; a few inches of clay will do it.

How do the scientists determine its a meteorite? Just curious.. what methods do they use? Anyone knows?

Is it possible that the falling debris (organic or otherwise) might've stirred up some viral or bacteria crud in the mud that caused the locals to snort it all up? Or maybe it just stirred up some synthetic toxic crap?

There is a chance that the illness is connected to a biological agent (from earth) possibly released when the meteor hit, however there is that outside chance that it is alien, which is a scary thaught

There is something wierd about this pictures. They look like remains of explosion not meteor. It should be long (more or less) with hole in the end. And this is only hole like something was dropped not hitted the ground under some angle... But im not expert in meteors...

Hmm. Well clay is an aquaclude (water cannot permeate) so I can see your point, but IF you are correct than it will be ruled in very quickly, for as soon as anyone takes proper soil samples, the evidence will most likely knock out those taking the samples due to the sheer obviousness of this outcome. Mind you, I am extremely distrusting of anyone who presents things as truth that I cannot back up on my own, through either many confirmable and reliable sources (which can always be called into question), or if I am presented with the direct evidence. All I am saying green dog, is that you should just give it a little more time before being 100% certain that this is what you say it is. You weren't there, you don't have samples of the water, gasses, or whatever this meteorite turns out to be, so just keep an open mind to alternatives until the proof arrives, if it ever does.

First of all, I didn't read all the posts.

I saw this today morning on Euronews, the only channel that I watch everyday.

When I saw the symptoms it reminded me of gas, because I know a guy that worked in the gas company and he said once that many people that complain of .aches and do not have any other symptoms usually have a small gas leak.

So I think that the most probable reason is some gas, either from the ground (the most probable, because of the time that it has kept on affecting people) or from the meteorite.

And the crater is 6 metres deep, not 6 feet as I have read in a post.

The original newspost said 20 meters (6ft) deep. And you should take the time to read these other posts, because many people are giving some great input, and others are turning into radioactive space zombies!! Oh my!

I suggest on reading a bit more before posting next time
there are way more sympthoms than a .ache . If those people had only .ache there would be no story I guess

This is obviously the fridge that was jettisoned from the ISS on the 23rd July (hence the gas), just looks like they couldn't be bothered tracking it like they said they would. here comes a cover up.

This here is a link to the story
